DigitalPersona provides public and private organizations with the ability to link their customers’, employees’ and partners’ physical identity to their logical identity allowing them to create, manage and secure their digital identity.
Our solutions reflect a deep understanding not only of biometrics technology, but also the rapidly changing environments in which they are deployed. We understand that an organization’s ability to safeguard anything, from national secrets to cash in a retail register, hinges on one thing — assured identity. At the same time, organizations looking to drive efficiency and service levels find biometrics-based solutions speed processes and improve accuracy in banking, retail, healthcare and government entitlement programs.
We draw from a deep portfolio of software applications and capture devices to configure identity solutions for any enterprise. Our solutions are deployed in a range of environments, from complex ecosystems for national governments to point solutions for small retailers. While biometrics technology —primarily fingerprints— are core to our offerings, our solutions are dynamic. The design of both our software applications and our identity processes anticipates changes in every market we serve. They also strictly adhere to industry standards and feature flexible, open architectures.
Our solutions approach allows customers to partner with DigitalPersona knowing we will continually invest in new technologies and advance our solutions. Our customers remain one step ahead of the threats, challenges and compliance mandates that seem to change on a daily basis.
Overwhelming statistics tell us that single-factor identification — relying exclusively or largely on passwords — no longer works. It’s simply too easy for one person to pretend to be another by compromising passwords or stealing/borrowing/forging ID cards and other credentials.
The financial implications associated with weak authentication can be disastrous. The average cost of a corporate security breach is $7.2M. Retailers lose an average of 7% of annual revenues to theft and fraud by employees. Patient misidentification errors cost more than $55B annually in the U.S. alone. Most enterprises — both in the public and private arenas — face similar and rapidly escalating identity issues.
This reality, along with three global megatrends — globalization, decentralization and mobility — make the shift to biometrics a near certainty. Because while passwords, tokens and ID cards can be faked, forged, stolen or otherwise compromised, biometrics are inextricably tied to individuals.
Fingerprints are by far the most popular biometrics for a number of reasons. First, fingerprints are the oldest and most accepted biometric identification modality. Fingerprints also tend to be one of the easiest characteristics to capture and verification is as simple as placing your finger on the reader.
DigitalPersona offers secure and effective biometrics-based solutions that align with the particular needs of each customer.
DigitalPersona is the leading provider of fingerprint biometric solutions for commercial applications with over 200 million users worldwide relying on our technology. We understand that different applications require different form factors. Some need standards-based fingerprint readers while others need smaller, more portable or lower cost form factors. That’s why we offer our customers a wide range of optical, silicon, touch, swipe and embedded components for capturing quality fingerprint biometrics. Our Software Development Kits (SDKs) are available on multiple platforms to make integration easy.
DigitalPersona Pro Enterprise gives you a cost-effective way to control access to your computers, applications, and networks. It lets you add strong authentication on top of Windows and your existing password-based applications as needed, without changing the apps themselves.
